1. Road experience   This will be the first true road game of the year for Ole Miss (Sorry, Tulane doesn’t count). Bryant-Denny Stadium will be packed and loud for an 8:15 p.m. start on ESPN.   For Ole Miss, a team playing a large number of freshmen and redshirt freshmen, this will be its first taste of Southeastern Conference road play. Saturday’s...

1. How much does Bo Wallace play?   Bennett Hipp (@bennetthipp): To me, it depends on how the game goes. If Alabama jumps out to a big lead early, and the Crimson Tide defense is teeing off on Wallace, it would make sense to limit his playing time to make sure he’s healthy for potentially winnable games coming up on the schedule.   Matt Sigler (@SigNewton_2):...

The Ole Miss women’s soccer team (9-2, 2-2 Southeastern Conference) finishes a four-game road swing with matches at No. 24 Florida and Auburn this weekend, beginning with a Friday night match in Gainesville before returning home to play Georgia and Kentucky next weekend.   “We’re sitting on about six points, right about mid-table of all of the teams,”...

After capturing their first Southeastern Conference win this past weekend against Mississippi State, the Lady Rebels (7-5, 1-2 SEC) hit the road to take on Alabama (12-4, 1-3 SEC) and South Carolina (13-2, 2-2 SEC) this weekend.   “Both teams are playing really well right now, probably the best they’ve ever played,” assistant coach Shannon Wells...

  1. Flush the Texas game   Both Hugh Freeze and members of the Ole Miss team have mentioned not letting Texas beat them twice. Freeze’s team experienced failure for the first time this season and in a particularly rough fashion.    It will be important for the Rebels to come out and play like it’s any other game, instead of stepping onto...

  When Ole Miss faces No. 1 Alabama on the road Saturday to open Southeastern Conference play, their backs are against the wall. The Rebels continue to rebuild under first-year head coach Hugh Freeze, while the Crimson Tide look stronger than last year’s national championship team.   It’s undoubtedly a tough task, but they received some good news...

  1. Alabama (4-0, 1-0 SEC, 1st last week)   The Crimson Tide had another dominant outing last week, defeating Florida Atlantic 40-7. Alabama looks like the team to beat in the SEC.   This week: Ole Miss (3-1), 8:15 p.m., ESPN   2. LSU (4-0, 1-0 SEC, 2nd last week)   It was a lot closer than most anticipated, but LSU got a road win at Auburn 12-10....
